The belt is likely off the pulley, or has fallen off after breaking. They are around $5 to $15.00 at any parts store. If not check the tensioning system that presses against the back side of the belt above the power steering pump somewhere.
Does it make a horrible noise once it starts? If so that is because the belt is just horribly loose.

Most likely the belt and pulleys are shiny if you look at them, replace the belt, while you have the belt off try and clean the glaze off the pulley groves, this will make the new belt "grip" better and avoid slipage.

use an electrical tester with a sharp point tip, and poke through the coating into the wire at every 5".
this is the best wat to test the wiring.

I had the very same problem with my 94 tracker and it turned out to be something simple. My check engine light had popped on after it had hit 100,000. I went through all of the suggestions that people had suggested (unplug battery......etc) and still to no avail. Searching the internet, I came across a website called suzukiforum.com and there, this guy was able to help me with my problem. It turned out to be a maintenance switch that kicks on every 50,000 miles. This switch is like a secret that the auto manufactures use to ploy owners of their cars to bring to the dealer and then rack up the dollars in unnecessary "repairs". The switch is located under the dash and can be hidden anywhere. From the assistance of the guy on the forum, he was able to send me photos of this damn switch and possible locations where it may be mounted. I found mine in about 5 minutes, where it was attached to the steering column. It's a tiny switch, that you slide up or down, depending on what position it is in upon finding it. If it's up, then slide it in the down position and visa versa. Once you do this, the check engine light will go off. Make sure you do not have the car running and you can even unhook one of the battery posts, just to make sure you don't hit anything while rooting around under the dash. Good luck!
